It sounds far better than any other monitors I've ever played that CD on. So...you could have a huge slog of muddy crap down below 100hz and if you mixed only on these, you wouldn't know it was there ( unless you are one of those hard to believe mixers who claim they can judge the bass by watching how much the woofers move?) I know many of you claim to do it but how could anyone possibly rely on NS10s alone for mixing?
This was my problem with them and why I ultimately removed them and just left the Auratones. I had no idea what was going on below 500Hz. It puzzled me that speakers this large provided actually even less info on the low mids/low end than tiny Auratones.

I'm sure if I spent 10 years with them I'd learn to read them, but since I didn't have that much time, I just put them in a closet.
